EC C-Group: The Netherlands wins Bronze

Category: European Championship - published 2012-09-17 by Cineplexx Blue Devils

Der erste Sieger des Finaltages bei der Football C-Gruppen EM in Hohenems sind die Niederlande. Das Team von Headcoach Winston Ronde besiegte Russland in einem spannenden Spiel mit 17-15.

Nach Problemen in der ersten Halbzeit gelang es den Holländern in der zweiten Halbzeit ein solides Laufspiel zu etablieren. Der massige Fullback Humphrey Koopmans und die flinken Runningbacks Castelen und Kunst sorgten für die Entscheidung. Castelen sorgte im 3rd Quarter mit einem sehenswerten Lauf über 70 Yards für die Vorentscheidung. Er wurde zwar an der 1 Yard Line gestoppt, dennoch gelang es den Niederländern kurz darauf zu punkten. Russland, ganz offensichtlich noch vom harten Spiel gegen die Schweiz geschwächt, gelang es mit einer Interception die in die Endzone getragen wurde zwar noch das Spiel spannend zu machen, es blieb aber beim 17-15 für Holland.

The Netherlands are the first winners at the final day of the C-Group Euro 2012. The team of Headcoach Winston Ronde beat Russia 17-15 in a close game.

After problems in the first half the Netherlands were able to establish a solid run game. Good carries by Fullback Humphrey Koopmans opened up holes for the shifty RBs Castelen and Kunst. The running game was the deciding factor in the game. Castelen had a great run for about 70 yards in the 3rd quarter. He was stopped on the 1 yard line but the orange scored right after that. Russia was able to score on a INT, but could not come back.
